Celebrating Canada Day in London


Canada day is a wonderful day in which proud citizens can come together and celebrate our true north strong and free! I have many fond memories of my Canada days growing up because it is a day when the whole family can be together, participate in fun activities and kick off the beginning of summer. London offers a number of different ways for families to celebrate Canada’s 147th birthday this year. No matter what area of London you live in, there is bound to be something going on near you!

The largest and most popular Canada day celebrations will be occurring at the following locations:

Harris Park
White Oaks Park
East  Lions Park
Byron Optimist Sports Complex

For more information on the celebrations occurring at each specific venue, be sure to check out our event page which features a complete description of each celebration. I’ve only been to the Harris Park celebration on Canada day, but I can assure you that I have no complaints about it. Although the fudge vendor would have been enough to win me over on its own, there were lots of neat booths and activities, and it was really beautiful to be along the river for the fireworks.

Although each of the celebrations will differ, they will definitely all have delicious foods, entertaining activities, and brilliant fireworks. The firework display begins at 10pm at each location. No matter where you choose to be in London on July 1st, we hope you have a wonderful Canada day with your families!
